EA updated the sponsors on the car in a 2nd print run. Note that this change apparently only affected the manual – the disc and back insert appear the same.

Trivia

  • One of the earliest known cover changes to make sure it was as accurate as possible. EA updated the sponsors on the car, and even mention / thank them in the Copyright text on the back of the game case.
  • The Greatest Hits release came after the ESRB re-wrote their descriptors. Hence the E for Everybody on it.
